    I found these pics. on my PC from last year when i plowed with a tri axle. Couldn't happen to a better company. These guys pay no money at all. Like 20-25/hr when everyone else gets 30+. That company goes threw drivers like i change my pants:laughing: The truck ended up being totaled cuz of frame damage. BTW i didn't take the pics. They were emailed to me.

    Well when we were plowing we would put the body up to get salt in the back while we were still moving. But we always put them right back down and we do it in areas were we know we wont hit over passes when the body is up lol.

    i bet the boss was pissed about that. i'm amazed the cab isn't damaged from that hit, they will usually smack the bottom of the overpass. what company was it, i cant quite make out the name
